Burgers, delicious. Gardens, beautiful.  Doesn’t spending the evening sampling burgers prepared by local restaurants, eating various foods from a fry bar, and drinking complimentary beer all while listening to live music and meandering through beautiful Leu Gardens sound like the best time?  Why yes, yes it does.  And that is why Johnny’s Fillin’ Station is presenting the 1st Annual Burger Bash at Leu Gardens this Saturday, Sept 13th from 6pm-9pm.  Bring your appetite and be sure to sample each burger because participants are competing for a $3,000 prize and a people’s choice award!

General Admission tickets are $40.  VIP tickets are $100, and get you in at 5pm as well as a few other perks, more info can be found  here.

Finally!  Pig Floyd’s  is opening its doors for business, tomorrow, September 11th at 4pm.  If you live in, frequent or even just drive through the Mills50 district I’m sure you noticed a while back that the old Atilla’s restaurant was being gutted.  That alone caused excitement for us, we love watching the Mills50 district grow and started wondering what would pop up there.  Would it be a new unique storefront, a craft beer bar, a locally owned restaurant…?  Our question was soon answered, a locally owned bbq restaurant, something Mills50 did not have!

Pig Floyd’s describes themselves as ‘Introducing a fresh interpretation of the barbecue experience.  Integrating cultural influences with traditional fire, smoke and pit methods to craft vibrant, delicious fare.’    There is something for everyone on their menu, from brisket and ribs to tofu and salads. And let’s not forget their sauces, from traditional sweet and hot to the more exotic Tikka Masala. From what we’ve heard Pig Floyd’s will not disappoint and we cannot wait to see that for ourselves!

There will definitely be a line forming before 4pm so get out there early and grab yourself some deliciousness from Mills50 District’s only bbq joint, Pig Floyd’s!

TONIGHT IS OPENING NIGHT!

Don’t go alone, don’t make a sound, pretend you’re a stone.

There are still a few open seats so hurry and get your tickets NOW!  And don’t worry, if we do sell out, and I’m sure we will, you can just come to the show another night!

And just in case you haven’t heard about it…

Local artists Patrick Fatica and Blue Star have once again put their creative minds together to bring you yet another experiment in storytelling titled  Monster.  After the success of their past collaborations, ‘Hammers and Lambs’ and ‘Shadows of the Waifs’ they decided to bring something a little different to the table.  Using paper cutouts Fatica created a stop motion film about 5 little girls that get lost in the forest and fall victim to their vices, that film was the inspiration behind Star’s stage performance.  Dark and beautiful is something these two always seem to get just right!

If you are not familiar with these two locals be sure to visit one of this month’s shows and support the exciting art that is found surrounding Downtown Orlando in the Mills50 and Ivanhoe Village Main Street districts. This is definitely a show you do not want to miss and a perfect start to the Halloween season!

Be sure to visit the interactive website for some sneak peeks and behind the scenes footage!
